Is PARI GP capable of doing exactly this for degree 6 polynomials, and finding polynomials with the same number field properties as x^6+x^5+x^4+x^3+x^2+x+1.

One way would be setting up a few queries via PARI GP to solve for:

Discriminant [ax^6+bx^5+cx^4+dx^3+ex^2+fx+g] for a = 1, 20; b = 1, 20; c = 1, 20; d = 1, 20; e = 1, 20; f = 1, 20; g = 1, 20; where 1, 20 denotes all integers 1 <= (a, b, c, d, e, f, g) <= 20.

The number of combinations of polynomials would be, 20^7 = 1280000000 such polynomials searching for discriminant = -16807 or some other related value.

Please show me a command via Pari GP which can do five variable solution for:

Discriminant of x^6+4x^5-3x^4+ax^3+bx^2+cx+d = -16807

There should be at least one set of integers which will work with the following property.

This is interesting, especially for getting into polynomials of degrees 6, 10, and 12.
poldisc is the discriminant of a polynomial, polcoeff are the coefficients, polcyclo is the cyclotomic polynomial, polcycloreduced produces a vector of elementary divisors of some kind related to the polynomial ( looks to factor the polynomial discriminant, but I'm not an expert). edit:polsubcyclo is also one I've just played around with that may be able to do what you want if you know what quantities to input.
